MHC is being just a little facetious.


Why?

I have just put one in to link a couple of buildings ...

I've just been looking at this and the offerings from Solwise here.

Solwise do some 'cheaper' options, but then the first link has everything to get it up and running, which I like.

But is the hedge going to cause that much of an issue?

Both! Primarily business but I can use it for personal when I am there.

Minor improvements in latency by minimising switching times on the ground but there is not much which can be done.

Cannot say exactly but it is in the order of $NN0,000 / month!

How tall, how wide, how dense, single double row ... The confiers contain a lot of water and oils throughout ... water responds quite nicely to 2.45 GHz and will absorb the radiation ... so it is unlikely to get through.

Well, the hedge will get in the way of line-of-sight unless you can go over it. What sort of obstacles are in the way of the far-better cable option?

I think I'm going to have to go over the hedge, or cut a hole in it smile

Solid concrete path, lawn, hedge, gravel over concrete base that carries cars and horses. We've decided cable isn't a suitable option and would cost too much disruption.

There are choices there - but you will need to get way above the "hedge" by at least 1meter for 1 years' growth of if it is never cut, several metres. The last one I looked at had conifers almost 20metres high and still growing that would have required some quite meaty masts - they have to remain stable in all weathers and access to them will not be easy or cheap.

The 5GHz will work - but it is not cheap ...

It does seem that going over is going to be the only option. I'm going to need to get back on site to check out the options, as I didn't really take note.

I thought 2.4GHz travelled through obstacles better as it's a wider frequency than 5GHz?

I'm going to have to go back onsite and carry out a survey, as it was a last minute thing and in the dark.
